A meatless entrée or a hearty family pleasing side, this rice recipe is as simple as opening cans.
Five-Spice Quinoa with Toasted Almonds
Five-spice powder is a seasoning that usually includes star anise, cinnamon, licorice root, fennel, and black or Sichuan pepper. It plays well against the slight nuttiness of quinoa, a grain that is rich in protein. Toasting the quinoa in a little oil adds a pleasing nuance of flavor. If the quinoa is sold in bulk or loose, I recommend rinsing it. If it’s in a package, you may omit this step.
Peanutty Noodles with Seasonal Vegetables
Sauteed vegetables top a tangled of whole-wheat pasta, dressed with a creamy peanut sauce.
Lemon Angel Hair Pasta with Pine Nuts
Pine nuts are considered to be an aphrodisiac so make this lemon pasta a side of choice with whatever you are serving!
